Our "Precious Possession; TIME"

We have only just a minute,
only sixty seconds in it.
Forced upon us, can't refuse it;
didn't seek it, didn't choose it;
But it's up to us to use it.
We must suffer if we lose it,
give account if we abuse it.
It is only just a minute,
But eternity is in it.

The importance of things can be measured by how much time we are willing to invest in them. The more time we give to something, the more we reveal its importance and value to us. If any of us wanted to know a person's priorities, we just have to look at how they use their time. Time is our precious gift because we only have a set amount of it. We can make more money, but we can't make more time. When we give someone our time, it only means that we are giving them a portion of our life that we'll never get back. 


It is not enough to say relationships are important, we must prove it by investing time in them. The essence of love is not what we think or do for others, but how much we give ourselves.

Some people don't understand this scenario; "A Man provide everything to his Family, and yet asking himself; What more could they want?" Well basically he doesn't know if he's doing it  right. His Family want him! His eyes, ears, time, attention, presence and focus. Nothing can take the place of that. Because the most desired gift of love is not diamonds, roses, or chocolates, but it is focused attention. Hence, when we give our time, we are making a sacrifice, and that sacrifice is the essence of love.
